Oil and gas field tie-in is a solution to take advantage of the existing infrastructure of major oil and gas fields to connect with and develop the marginal fields. This approach allows to increase the economic efficiency of small and medium reserves, open prospects for developing and bringing small and marginal fields into early production.

The field tie-in process faces different technical and economic challenges, including connecting and gathering capability, and levels of technological modification for receiving and distributing products. In the case of fields connected to the technological system of other owners, product distribution has important implications relating to the direct interests of the investors.

The article analyses the product distribution models which Vietsovpetro is applying to the tie-in fields, evaluating the possibility of updating/upgrading simulation softwares with high reliability, allowing rapid technical assessment of the changes in the flow of fluid in the system through technological treatment processes.
